Comedian and actress Mo’Nique has been out on social media asking for support from fans and celebrity friends about boycotting Netflix for lowballing her. Mo’Nique joins the Tom Joyner Morning Show along with her husband Sidney Hicks to speak her piece about Netflix.
Comedian Guy Torry commented that many people believed that Mo’Nique was “out of the game” for a while in comedy.
“When you say, ‘out of the game,’ what do you mean out of the game,” asked Mo”nique.”Here’s where It gets funny, I never left. We were doing the Spread The Love tour, I never stopped doing stand-up. It makes me laugh when you (Guy Torry) and Tony Rock says ‘she left the game’ when you go back through my records, I never left the game.”
“It’s unfortunate that with us that if we work and work and work we’re out of the public eye.”
John Murray got unto Facebook live and claimed that Mo’Nique was offered $3 million from Netflix only if she performed a set for them.
“No, no one would promise you what they’re going to give you money to based upon the condition of what you’ve done,” explained Hicks. “I would be interested to know how John Murray knows a deal better than we do…To answer your question no.”
Mo’Nique continues the interview by taking questions from the Tom Joyner Morning Show audience about her Netflix conflict.
